Embrace Your Shadow, Unleash Your Light

Description: We cannot fully step into our magnificence until we have acknowledged and made peace with our darkness. Most of us avoid our darkness, but our shadow side actually holds tremendous gifts for us. Based on the work of Debbie Ford, this fun, challenging, and highly experiential program will lovingly support you in embracing your shadow and unleashing your light.

Margaret Tiveron and Don Giberson

Don is a business coach who helps spiritual entrepreneurs express their authentic self through their business. He believes the spiritual path includes finding and expressing our authentic self. And authenticity comes from integrating our darkness and our light. He has been a member of Unity for over 25 years and currently serves as board co-treasurer.

Margaret has been a student of Unity for over twenty years and is currently coordinator of Unity of Nanaimo’s Prayer Guides. She is an interfaith minister and has done shadow work for about ten years, having taken some coach training with Debbie Ford, author of Dark Side of the Light Chasers and other books about the shadow.

Thursdays at 7:00 - 8:00   February 11 to March 25
